My eldest daughter loves coconut flavoured treats. She asks me to make coconut cakes, muffins, cupcakes, cookies… You name it. And off course, coconut ice cream is one of her favourite flavours! I am happy to oblige as I too like coconut. It always makes me feel like I am on a tropical island, enjoying the turquoise sea and the warm sun on my skin… so, why not? This recipe is very easy and quick to make and the result is unbelievably good: in no time you will have a smooth, soft and silky ice cream to eat on its own or use in other recipes (I have something in store for you, so make sure to keep an eye on this page!). And all of this, using only 3 or 4 ingredients!! What are you waiting for?? Enjoy!
